Not Turner, but one of my reflectors actually warped my bumper and left indentations. The top portion of the bumper-cutout itself is resting over the reflector. The reflector doesn't rest on top of the bumper like designed.

What's the lesson here?

Don't buy cheap shit, it will cause problems and end up spending more money.
